It's been forever and a day or two since I posted, but when the sun is shining, the birds are singing, and there is actually green substance growing in the garden, I find it hard to sit still long enough to post anything. (Maybe a case of Spring ADHD?)
I've been productive though..
The first planting of the year....
The daffodils are in full bloom. Aren't they beautiful? I think Carol would call this one "Egg Yolks On Snow" (or something like that). She's very creative with her daffodil names.
Notice anything wrong with this picture?
Notice how there isn't anything green peeking through the dirt?
Well, that's just sick and wrong because 3 weeks ago (or there abouts..before we travelled to paradise) we planted cold crops in this bed. Lettuce, turnips, radishes, and a tiny bit of spinach.
NONE of it has taken. So....
Is it because
A. I have a brown thumb (mainly because my sister Carol stole all the green thumb genes before I was born)
B. There was too much rain right after we planted so everything rotted.
C. The seeds were bad.
D. It's too soon. (But I really don't think that is the case here. They really should be showing SOME signs of life).
Tomorrow we replant if the rain holds off or unless I hear screams echoing through cyberspace telling me not to replant yet (I trust you garden bloggers immensely. I'm depending on you to help me be a successful gardener in spite of my brown thumb).
On a brighter note, Prince Charming bought some new "stuff" for the gazebo.
I don't think Sam has left this spot since.
As you can see, he is now taking his meals outside as well. He only comes in to get a new book upon occasion. Well, and to sleep of course. It does get nippy at night.
He just finished The Door Within series, and is now reading Penrod by Booth Tarkington.
Seth lost his other front tooth finally.
For those of you who have read my blog for awhile, you might remember that Seth feels the need to name his teeth after he loses them.
He had another tooth he named Bob as well. But he has an uncle named Bob whom he really likes, so maybe that's why he is focused on that name. Bob watched Victoria while we were travelling, that may be a reason he won the honor of having another tooth named after him. I wonder if Bob thinks it was worth it?
Speaking of puppies......
In our house it's against the law to take a nap without a dog to cuddle.
Well, hugs to you all.
I've missed you this week, but when the wild spring calls, it's against the laws of nature to disobey, don't you think?
